Now that I have crossed the half century mark, I find more and more often
(scarily) that my fingers don't always do what my brain tells them to do.
The message gets garbled along the way, kind of like an electronic message
missing a few packets along the way. There is no checksum working to tell
the sender that the message was incomplete. My fingers see the gap, decide
from wherever body memory resides that they know what the brain must've been
asking for. They pitch in and complete the task.

Alas, the fingers know all my word typing patterns, but they don't speak
English. Left to their own devices, they can get me in trouble.

Chellspeckers don't help. Fingers type real words and spell them correctly,
even if they weren't necessarily the words that the brain requested.

My brain said "removable", but my fingers said "removal".
